13-week classes start next week
If you wanted to enroll for Fall semester
at Piedmont Community College (PCC), but didn’t quite make it, you have a
second chance! PCC will offer 12 classes that begin between Sept. 6 and Sept.
16. Eight of the classes will be offered on the Internet, and the other four
will be offered on PCC’s Person County Campus.
“These 13-week classes offer a great
opportunity for high school students who did not enroll prior to the start of
the high school classes,” said Mike Dossett, Vice President, Instruction and
Student Development. “One that might be of particular interest is Certified
Nursing Assistant I (NAS 101.02P). This class provides the quickest way to a
career that is in great demand.”
Students who successfully complete this
class are eligible to take the exam to become Certified Nursing Assistants. The
class will be offered Monday through Thursday from 5:50-9:05 p.m.
Other 13-week classes to be offered include
College Student Success (ACA 111.61P), starting Sept. 10 and meeting Saturdays
from 8-9:45 a.m.; General Biology I (BIO 163.61P), starting Sept. 13, and
meeting Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7:50 p.m.; and Carpentry I (CAR 111.01),
starting Sept. 16, and meeting Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-8:20 p.m.
The following classes will be offered via
the Internet: Introduction to Business (BUS 110.72), Business Law I (BUS
115.72), two sections of Intro to Computers (CIS 115.72 and CIS 115.75),
Criminology (CJC 112.71), Criminal Law (CJC 131.71), Principles of Microeconomics
I (ECO 251.71), and Microeconomics II (ECO 252.71).
These classes are open to adults as well as
high school students and offer a full-semester’s worth of academic credit in a
13-week period by offering longer class times. The regular semester is 16 weeks
